Eric Sherwood Jones RIP (26 March 1921 - 14 January 2012)

"Epitaph on my Ever Honoured Father" by Robert Burns

O YE whose cheek the tear of pity stains,
 Draw near with pious rev'rence, and attend!
 Here lie the loving husband's dear remains,
 The tender father, and the gen'rous friend;
 The pitying heart that felt for human woe,
 The dauntless heart that fear'd no human pride;
 The friend of man-to vice alone a foe;
 For 'ev'n his failings lean'd to virtue's side.
